Last Minute Tech Gifts With Cat Schwartz

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Dec 19, 2013) - A recent survey by Sam's Club and Harris Interactive found that 64% of people would like to receive a practical gift -- as opposed to an indulgent gift -- for the holidays*, like the new Samsung Galaxy Note 3. This smartphone has a larger screen to make multi-tasking a breeze and amazing video and camera quality. Becoming a Sam's Club member opens doors to unbeatable savings on tech gifts, especially on brand name phones. This weekend, everyone can warm up to Sam's Club savings at their Last Minute Shopping Open House. From December 20 to December 22, guests can shop for the season's most sought after gifts without additional fees.

Speaking of phones, how many times have you missed a call in your house because you can't find your cell phone? Or have been forced to stand in the one spot in your house that receives the best cell reception? Panasonic Link2Cell has solved that problem by allowing you to make and receive cell phone calls right on your home phone handsets. These phones work with or without a landline and up to two cell phones can be connected. It even gives you text message alerts. More information about the Panasonic KX-TG787 Link2Cell consumer phone can be found at

Personalized gifts are really in this year and you can use tech to make them!

Visit iClickn' and select the type of project you'd like to work on, and you'll be making custom gifts in no time!

Tech can be frustrating in that not all devices get along well with each other, making things like videos hard to share. Solving this, the free RealPlayer Cloud app lets you securely store your videos in the cloud so they're accessible on any device including smartphones, tablets and even your TV! It doesn't matter if you're using an iPhone and sending videos to an android device, the videos are simply there with no long buffering times.

Another great tech idea is a mobile phone from Zact. They offer no contract, nationwide plans for significantly less than traditional carriers. Plus, they offer parental controls to set limits on your child's phone usage, amount of time spent texting and more. They have a Zact control app you can download on your phone which lets you set the parental controls on your child's phone.
